I highly recommend this book hand in hand with: The First Aid Companion for Dogs & Cats (Prevention Pets) These books should be in every dog owners' home.
Nothing replaces having a good family veterinarian for your dog, but this book is a great guide to help you communicate better with your vet.
Nothing extra in the book that you cant find on the internet. Pictures are in black and white so it hard to decipher how examples of certain "ailments" really look.Published 18 days ago by knj
